Science has always been one of my favorite subjects. The opportunity to explore the natural world around me has proved invaluable and the things I learn never cease to amaze me. In high school, I discovered my avid interest in biology and ecology and thus began my educational journey through the field of Environmental Science. I was lucky enough to have a wonderful AP Biology teacher who provided ample opportunity for me to explore the world of plants and to experience first-hand, through numerous projects and experiments, the intricacies of these organisms' systems. It was such exploration that motivated me to pursue a degree in Environmental Studies and work towards the preservation of the natural world.
